About the camp This camp is open to youth aged 12 - 15 in The Warehouse’s Region 5 division (including Taupo, Tokoroa, Whakatane, Tauranga, Papamoa, Rotorua, Gisborne, Hastings and Napier). Camp themes include resilience, collaboration and connectedness, confidence and positive thinking. Campers will get the chance to challenge themselves to something new, like horse riding or kayaking, but of course there’s time to chill out at the hot pools or around the campfire. It’s a great way to make new friends, and make lifelong memories!
This camp was made possible by your regional The Warehouse group. They have generously provided funding so it’s FREE to attend!
